A person, who had sustained injuries during the recent attacks at a number of puja mandaps in Comilla, died Thursday night while undergoing treatment at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).

The deceased was identified as Dilip Das, 62, father of actress Adhora Priya and resident of Comilla’s Gangchar area.

He died around 11:45 pm while on life support at the hospital.

Dilip was seriously injured after being hit with a brick on his head in front of Rajarajeshwari Kalibari puja mandap on October 13.

Later he was taken to Dhaka.

Contacted, Achinta Das Titu, general secretary of Comilla Metropolitan Puja Committee, strongly condemned the incident. 

He said: “As a result of the violence, 17 puja mandaps were vandalized and a number of idols were desecrated in Comilla. About 12 people were injured at the time, one of whom died Thursday night.”

On October 13, several temples and puja venues in the city came under attack in the afternoon as tension mounted over an allegation of sacrilege.
